This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

Cloudy golden color. Big piny vegetal hop aroma. A little malt in the flavor but the hops are big and bitter. Nice beer but a little on the bitter piny side for me.

12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange with moderate off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine resin, and sweet citrus. Taste is slightly dank and bitter, with some sweetness in the middle, before a long dry, and almost sour finish. Thereís something dank and disconcerting in the aftertaste Body is medium with average carbonation. Iíve enjoyed every Deschutes brew Iíve tried more than this one.

Very odd. I thought maybe this was expired, but I checked the day. Itís Oct 10 now, and this is best before Nov. 23, so it should still be good. Cloudy yellow body, white head some lacing. Off-putting aroma of blue cheese, pineapple. Taste is dry, some hops, pine, etc. but not great. I almost have to plug my nose while drinking this. Thereís gotta be something off with this bottle. Perhaps Iíll try it again if I get another bottle, but as is this is borderline drain pour...though, of course, I never actually pour beer down the drain.

bottled - cloudy golden/amber color. Flavor of pine and hops. Piney hoppy aroma too. Just ok but Iím not a big fan of the pine flavor.

Draft @ the Portland brewpub. Distinctly piney/woody hoppiness lives up to the moniker. On the drier side. Unique flavor profile.

Clean pale golden color wth small white head. Aroma is tangy grassy fruity sweet wth melon and straw. Taste is also grassy sweet with more melon and danky weed. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, Nice one

Deschutes have a way of naming their beers that basically tells it as it is. Pine Drops! Its pine in the nose all the way through to the pallet. Tastes like your drinking fresh pine juice. Nice and hoppy.

obguthr (5711) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Pine, moss, and marigold nose. Hazy amber, medium head, good lace. Marigold, marijuana, and collards, grain husk finish. Gym sock overtones. Medium body, easy carbonation, resinous. Iím not a fan of the hop bill.

beerbaaron (1974) - Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Clear, bright light orange. Frothy white head. Pine mixed nicely with sweet caramel. Some sweet citrus as well. Maybe too sweet, but very tasty. Mild bitterness. Thankfully pine isnít harsh or cloying.

AmandaJane (1) - Occidental, California, USA - SEP 15, 2016 does not count
Bright citrus herbal aroma, and dry bitter hoppiness and citrus peel notes. Fairly light in body with a pleasantly astringent finish. Crisp and clean, not malty sweet.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of a danky, freshly rained on forest, which is a bit refreshing compared to the stereotypical IPAs. But when the taste matches the aroma, leaving you with a foresty, pine-forward aftertaste, thatís where I draw the line. Other than that, itís a decent middle of the road IPA.
